VIN Bloody hell! Another superb album from this crew. The ante has been upped. They go from strength to strength. I'd love to see them play live. Favorite track: Ignition/Space Cruiser.

DoomWitch Put away your bongs and 'shrooms. You wont need them.

Hints of Tool & Golden Earring mix with amazing riffs, earworm licks, perfectly timed tempo and mood switches, and superb vocals and storytelling combine to catapult the listener into an epic rollercoaster ride of a trip. Damn. Favorite track: Ignition/Space Cruiser.

Cató ILUDE I really like cosmic Piligrim. I think it's the best of them all. followed by Ascension and from Adrift from a sea of stars. but the 4:19 of this song is so brutal and at the same time the break on the crescendo... amazing for headbands and some spacegrass at the frontline. other wise .. get ready for some neck break at 7:20 .


don't forget the heavy ingnitiom space cruiser Favorite track: The Cosmic Pilgrim.

about

ALSO AVAILABLE AT ripplemusic.bandcamp.com/album/hymn-of-the-cosmic-man

Fire Down Below's second album

"More expansive than the first one, it still holds all those key elements we loved so much from their first one. That stoner trucking, that speedy delivery of riffs and the slow building pummeling of the drummer. Perhaps the biggest difference is the feel of the entire record, this feels like one gigantic beast, an adventure that needs to be explored on a whole. While their debut felt like a kick ass collection of amazing tracks. Slowly, the album takes you along on the quest through that foreign wasteland becoming atmospheric one moment, oppressive the next and gritty and wild the following. Hymn Of The Cosmic Man has everything you need to get you through the day! The week! The month! The year! One hell of a follow-up!"

Track Name: Ignition/Space Cruiser
SUN IS BLINDING MY EYES
IT’S COMING FROM BELOW
IT’S A LOT TO TAKE IN
BUT ALL I WANT IS MORE

FALLING!

GOING THROUGH THE BLACK HOLE
TO ANOTHER TIME AND SPACE
1000 MILES AN HOUR
MY LIFE IS FLASHING BY

HONESTLY I BELIEVE IN HONESTY
I COULD TELL IF YOU’D EVER LIE TO ME
FALLING FROM THE SKY IS WHEN I REALIZE
WHAT THE HELL IS IT TOO LATE TO START AGAIN?

SOMETHING’S CLOSING IN AND
I HAVE TO CALM MY BREATH
THIS AIN’T NO SIMULATOR
BUT A FULL PANIC ATTACK

FALLING FROM THE SKY AGAIN
HELPLESS
IS IT TOO LATE TO START AGAIN?
SOMETIMES
IF YOU’D EVER LIE TO ME
I COULD TELL
I BELIEVE IN HONESTY
WHOA

FALLING FROM THE SKY AGAIN
‘CAUSE I DON’T ALWAYS HAVE THE ANSWER
THAT CAN LIFT ME UP AGAIN
I’M FLOATING FURTHER INTO SPACE
I ALWAYS PICTURED IT THIS WAY
IGNITES THE FIRE IN MY SOUL

EVERYTHING I’VE EVER KNOW
MEANS NOTHING
DEEP INTO THE ENDLESS SPACE
I’M NOTHING
SEARCHING FOR THE HEAVEN’S DOOR
I CAN’T FIND IT
COULD IT BE THAT WE’RE ALONE?
WHOA
Track Name: Saviour of Man
YEAH, MY CAGE OF STEEL IS TAKING ME AWAY
YEAH, THE SPEED LIMIT DOES NOT APPLY TO ME
OR AT LEAST, THAT’S WHAT THEY SAY
A LIGHT YEAR IN A SINGLE DAY
I AM ON A MISSION TO SAVE THE HUMAN RACE

ENGINE’S BURNING GASOLINE
JUPITER AM-18
SNOW ON EVERY TV SCREEN
NUMB MY MIND AND BURN MY DREAMS

I WILL BE A HERO I’M GONNA SAVE THE DAY
WOMEN ACROSS THE NATION
WILL NAME THEIR CHILDREN AFTER ME
THEY CHOSE ME, I’M THE BEST
EVERYONE IS GONNA SHOUT MY NAME
AND ONE DAY I’M SURE SHE TOO WILL SEE

THE OUTSIDE IS COLD, VOID OF ALL AIR
LET’S CONTAMINATE SOMETHING SO PURE
NO MAN HAS EVER SET FOOT UP HERE
CANCER WILL SPREAD THROUGH OUTER SPACE
Track Name: The Cosmic Pilgrim
IT’S IN MY SOUL, IT’S IN MY HEART
IT SENDS A PULSE INTO THE DARKNESS
IT CRAWLS AWAY UP MY SPINE
IT’S SOMETHING DARK THAT WILL CONSUME ME
HELP ME TO FIND THEE
THE GOD UP ABOVE
HELP ME AND GUIDE ME FURTHER
DON’T LET ME FALL DOWN

WHEN I WAS BORN, AT MIDDAY
IT WAS THE PINNACLE OF MY LIFE
AND I WAS ONCE THE ENDPOINT
THE FINAL STEP IN EVOLUTION
HELP ME TO FIND THEE
THE GOD UP ABOVE
HELP ME AND GUIDE ME FURTHER
DON’T LET ME FALL DOWN

HEY, THE VESSEL POINTS TOWARDS THE SUN
COMMENCING COUNTDOWN ENGINES ON
I PUSH THE BUTTONS ALL AT ONCE
AS I PREPARE TO LAUNCH

KEEPING THE PEACE
I WHISPER SOFT SO YOU WON’T HEAR ME
I HAVE BECOME WASTE IN SPACE
IS THERE SOMETHING YOU WILL REMEMBER?
Track Name: Nebula
A CHILD IS BORN INTO THE SEA
HE WEEPS, HE DROWNS
HE FALLS FROM THE TIDAL WAVE
HE SIGHS AND LETS
HIMSELF GO UNDER
SPINNING ‘ROUND IN THE ENDLESS BLACKNESS
OF A WORLD SO CRUEL AND COLD
IN BETWEEN THE STARS AND ME
INTO A VOID THAT SWALLOWS ALL
A CHILD IS BORN
Track Name: Ascension
I SIT UPON MY THRONE
IN THE DEPTHS OF MY OWN SOUL
SO GREAT AND POWERFUL
I AM UNTOUCHABLE
BUT SOMETIMES IN SPITE OF THIS
I LONG FOR THE TOUCH OF YOUR KISS

I AM THE GREATEST OF GODS
I AM THE KING ON THE MOUNTAIN
I AM THE WOLF AND THE LAMB
I AM THE SWORD ABOVE YOUR HEAD
HALLELUJAH!

I SEE FEAR IN YOUR EYES
WHEN MY LIGHTNING STRIKES YOU DOWN
I’VE BUT TO RAISE MY HAND
TO MAKE AN ARMY FALL
BUT SOMETIMES IN SPITE OF THIS
I LONG FOR THE TOUCH OF YOUR KISS

I AM THE GREATEST OF GODS
I AM THE KING ON THE MOUNTAIN
I AM THE WOLF AND THE LAMB
I AM THE SWORD ABOVE YOUR HEAD
HALLELUJAH!

WALK TO THE LIGHT
OUT IN THE SILENCE
OPEN THE DOOR LET ME OUT!
Track Name: Adrift in a Sea of Stars
WOULD YOU LOVE ME
IF I GOT NOTHING TO LOSE
WOULD YOU DESERT ME
IF I GOT NO PLACE TO GO
WOULD YOU HATE ME
IF I GOT NOTHING TO SAY
WOULD YOU BETRAY ME
IF I GOT NO MORE TO GIVE

THEN DO IT SOMEWHERE OUT OF TIME
FLYING WEIGHTLESS ALL ALONE
CAN YOU SEE ME BETWEEN THE MILLIONS?
PLEASE GIVE ME A SIGN OF LIFE

I’VE BECOME A SATELLITE
I TRAVEL THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE

WHEN IT’S DARK I’LL WALK TOWARDS THE LIGHT
WILL YOU HOLD ME WHEN I START TO SLIP AWAY
TOWARDS THE SHELTER
OF YOUR GENTLE ARMS’ EMBRACE
